The Number 1 Movie on HBO Max Has a Terrifying Twist “Pay it an overdue visit”


M. Night Shyamalan has helmed 15 feature films throughout his career. Luckily for genre fans, 13 of those titles are in the horror or thriller categories. However, it also means that there are many movies to consider when picking a favorite from the filmmaker’s resume.

While many stans’ answers constantly change, the one they seemingly enjoy revisiting the most is #1 on Max. The project that seems the most out of left field for the director, The Visit, is the one shaking up the charts this week. Follow me to our grandparent’s house if you need a refresher.

In the film,

“Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and younger brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) say goodbye to their mother as they board a train and head deep into Pennsylvania farm country to meet their maternal grandparents for the first time. Welcomed by Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), all seems well until the siblings start to notice increasingly strange behavior from the seemingly charming couple. Once the children discover a shocking secret, they begin to wonder if they’ll ever make it home.”

The M. Night stans are still obsessed with this funny found footage film. Many also find it terrifying, which is wild to say about a PG-13 movie.

The Visit was written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The movie stars Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, and Kathryn Hahn.

I love that Kathryn Hahn is in this movie. It was my first time seeing her outside of comedy. It proved she can really do it all, and I want her in so many more horror films ASAP.

Are you one of the many people revisiting The Visit on Max? Where does it rank among your favorite M. Night Shyamalan movies? I am nosey, so I hope you will tell me at @misssharai.
